The blog itself is quite broken up, not written in an ordered fashion, a bit mixed up, like I am, talking about Jersey, the Diocese and my life.


Thank you for reading my blog, please persevere if it is at a bitty phase, go back and find what you are looking for in older posts, use the search button, or look at the favourite posts and links in the side bars.

The blog is heavy, I know, but the case is complex and the reality is that it has always been beyond me to get past the trauma and tell my story, so I am doing my best, in bits, to do so, as well as sharing related articles and links.

Basically:

  • I was abused in the Church of England as a vulnerable adult aged 19.
  • I was abused by the husband of a vicar who was also my counsellor, this vicar took me home as a replacement for her stepdaughter who her husband, the girl's father, had abused and abandoned.
  • I was further abused by another church officer.
  • The church tried to close my complaints down, refused to deal with them and left both abusers and those who stood up for them in church positions.
  • The church got me a criminal record for speaking up, they claimed I was harassing them.
  • I had never been in police trouble before, but as a result, I lost my home and job, and was left on the streets, injured by the police and severely traumatized.


  • Last year, years too late and the other side of me being destroyed, and while I was still homeless and destitute, the church launched on me in the National press, claiming to apologize.
  • They also launched in the press, a 'report' into what had happened. This report was hideously inaccurate although it did show how members of church had abused process in not dealing with my complaint.
  • The report, although not naming me, made it quite easy for me to be identified, I was one of very few autistic 33 year old women in the UK on the streets, and enough people who I met and was looked after by, knew who the report was about, and I lost friends and was shunned as a result.
  • I also had strangers condemning and maligning me, it was heartbreaking.
  • Then a church officer associated with my abuser, also in government, released my name and breached the data protection act.


  • As a result of the Press reports and the report released, an all-out war broke out between the Diocese and Deanery involved, with me caught in the middle, I was slandered, I was smeared, I was condemned.
  • The Church offered no help and I became ill as each new inaccurate report and cover up came out, each new damnation of me.
  • New investigations were comissioned, and one was blatantly conflicted, to be carried out by a member of the group who supported the wrongdoers.
  • I have been excluded from all reports, which, to save the church, are whitewashes which cover up the original admissions of wrongdoing.
  • The church have treated me coldly, threatened me, despite them having me illegally traced by police, and have not helped me, instead they made illegal referrals of me to what they called help, without my consent and without checking it would help or what I wanted.
  • I have pleaded with them to stop the harm to me, but to no avail, and I am living in fear, severely traumatized and knowing I cannot withstand the damning press reports and whitewashes forever.

Jerseys Anglican Church: Some Problems with Safeguarding












Safeguarding

Clergy and senior lay leaders in Jersey's Anglican Church have had training in protecting islanders from abuse, the Bishop of Dover said. The Right Reverend Trevor Willmott said new safeguarding measures are in place to reassure everyone in the church. It follows a decision by the church's governing body - the Synod - that improvements must be made. Bishop Willmott said there was no question in his mind that "God's people are safe in this island".

-- BBC News


What would be useful to know, in the interests of transparency, would be the enhanced policies and procedures. I’ve had a look at the Town church website, and the only thing remotely connected is in the diary where there are “safeguarding training and lunches”

There is no safeguarding officer to contact in the list of contacts, no safeguarding policies on the website, and no indication of these new improvements at all, no links to safeguarding elsewhere (such as Dover) - or, for that matter, what training consisted of, or what they had for lunch!

Now pretty well any club or organisation which deals with children and vulnerable adults has a policy on their website, but the Anglican Church in Jersey does not. We have no idea how complaints will be handled, whether minutes of meetings will be kept, whether it will be ensured that vulnerable adults will have someone they trust in attendance.

It is also not clear how the church would act to implement the policies anyway. Part of the problem, both locally and in the UK, has been the way that in local communities, it is difficult to find someone outside and independent to look into these matters.

As one English survivor, called CF, said of her case:

"An abuse policy that does not have a clearly stated process of implementation is effectively worthless. A vulnerable person or an abused person by definition has no power in the Church. This means that someone with power has to make a decision to implement the policy, but to do this they have to suspend their total and complete faith in the priest or other person concerned."

There is a link to the Canons of the Church of England in Jersey on the Town Church website, and it is here that some interesting notes on safeguarding arise as the local Canons differ from the English Canon Law.

Let us look at changes to Canon Law to improve safeguarding in England:

On 16 February 2015, David Pocklingtom reported on changes taking place to Canon Law in England. This is what he noted:

At General Synod on 12 February, Mr Geoffrey Tattersall introduced the main provisions of the Draft PCCs: There was agreement that the disqualification and suspension provisions for PCC members should mirror those in relation to churchwardens. Furthermore, a bishop should also be empowered to suspend PCC secretaries and treasurers who are not PCC members.

(GS 1952A) and the draft Amending Canon No.34 (GS 1953A) – Draft Measure and draft Amending Canon for Revision. The main points identified in his speech are summarized below, and the Report by the Revision Committee is available as GS 1952-3Y.

The main provisions of the draft Measure are:

Suspension of a priest: Section 36(1) of the Clergy Discipline Measure already provides for the suspension of a priest or deacon when disciplinary proceedings are commenced or he/she is arrested on suspicion of committing a criminal offence, is convicted of certain offences, or included on a barred list.

Clause 1(1) of the draft Measure adds a power to suspend where the bishop is satisfied on information provided by the police or local authority that a priest or deacon presents a significant risk of harm – as defined in clause 1(2) – but before suspending the bishop is required to consult at the very least the diocesan safeguarding advisor. Such suspension continues for 3 months but may be renewed.

Churchwardens: The current clause 2 of the draft Measure provides for the disqualification and suspension of churchwardens. Mr Tattersall highlighted that:

Although the initial draft provided for a waiver of disqualification, the Revision Committee was persuaded that any such waiver required further clarity. Consequently clause 2(2) provides that before giving any waiver the bishop must at the very least consult the diocesan safeguarding advisor, and must give reasons for any such waiver, and that any such waiver will be of unlimited duration and have effect in every diocese;

As to suspension, the Committee agreed that a bishop should not only have power to suspend a churchwarden in the circumstances set out the present clause 2(5) of the draft Measure: i.e. if arrested on suspicion of committing a Schedule 1 offence, but also if the bishop was satisfied that the churchwarden presents a significant risk of harm.

And the draft Measure states this:

A relevant person must have due regard to guidance issued by the House of Bishops on matters relating to the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.

(2) Each of the following is a relevant person—
(a) a clerk in Holy Orders who is authorised to officiate in accordance with the canons of the Church of England;
(b) a diocesan, suffragan or assistant bishop;
(c) an archdeacon;
(d) a person who is licensed to exercise the office of reader or serve as a lay worker;
(e) a churchwarden;
(f) a parochial church council.

(1) In this Measure, “child” means a person aged under 18.
(2) In this Measure, “vulnerable adult” means a person aged 18 or over whose ability to protect himself or herself from violence, abuse, neglect or exploitation is significantly impaired through physical or mental disability or illness, old age, emotional fragility or distress, or otherwise.


Given that part of the reason for the split between Jersey and Winchester arose from a complaint made by a lady called HG about a churchwarden, these changes in England’s Canon Law - which mention churchwardens - need to be replicated in Jersey.

What is missing, therefore, from the Bishop’s statement is:

1. Policy and procedure documents available online in the public domain, including contacts and how to report a complaint.

2. Changes to Jersey Canon Law to bring it in line with England’s new safeguarding measures

Without those changes, the statement by the Bishop of Dover, that "God's people are safe in this island" seems rather hollow. It leaves significant gaps which still need to be rectified if that statement is to be made good.

Hollyoaks

Dear Church of England, you idiot ratbags from hell, I think you should complain to channel 4 because today on Hollyoaks, instead of distorting and misrepresenting the way the police and social services work, they are distorting and misrepresenting  the way the church of england works.

In The news...

As I have already blogged, Sir Philip Bailhache, the Dean's main protector and the main attack of me, using his power in the States, has been named for protecting a paedophile in Jersey.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-jersey-33872613

Unfortunately, of course, this was not the only case.

http://tonymusings.blogspot.co.uk/2011/10/philip-bailhache-and-roger-holland.html

And the Church of England allowed him to destroy me publicly for my abuser and the Dean. And they are claiming the Church in Jersey is a safe place!

I like Tony the Prof's blog recently, where he quotes me, and I am trying to work out where the quote comes from, I think it is from my open letter to Sir Philip Bailhache:

http://tonymusings.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/quis-custodiet-ipsos-custodies.html

My open letter to Philip bailhache:

http://www.opnlttr.com/letter/letter-jerseys-external-affairs-minister-sir-philip-bailhache

And yes, reading through this, Tony has obviously read my letter to Bailhache and plucked that quote from there.

Anyway, I must go back to following the Janner case, and doing my university prep, and waiting to hear if the joyful arrival of a new baby has occured as well.

12th Interview with HG

1. How did you communicate your complaint to the Dean, Bob Key?

I emailed him.


2. When he met you, who was present, and were notes taken?

There was just me and the Dean and his wife present. His wife took the notes. She has not long before that been sitting with the Churchwarden and his wife at an event and asked them why I wasn't sitting with them. There is a lot more to say here but I am sorry I cannot say it now.



3. When did you first contact the Bishop at the time, and what action did he take?

I contacted the Bishop after the Dean made it quite clear to me and another person that he intended to obstruct the complaint.
The Bishop, Bishop's office and safeguarding officer took no action, and this was the start of the safeguarding officer criticizing and blaming me and upholding the opinions of the people who supported the churchwarden, and this left me really ill and went on for years, leaving me destroyed.

4. Did you meet with any Bishop at any time? Who was present? Were notes taken?

The only time I met with the Bishop was too late in 2010, I had already been utterly destroyed, and a token meeting was set up by Jane Fisher against my wishes, to meet her safeguarding legislation requirements, unfortunately the whole thing was a totally sick setup, especially as I had made a formal complaint against Fisher.
I am sorry but this question makes me too sick and distressed to continue to answer. It is pure wickedness what they did with this meeting and lied about in the Korris report. After this meeting Jane Fisher had a free rein to destroy me completely.
Again, I can't say any more on this without collapsing. It makes me sick.


5. What do you think should happen if a complaint of a safeguarding nature is made about a churchwarden?

I think if anyone needs to make a complaint, they must make it directly to the police, and ignore the church who are incapable of safeguarding and usually exclude and harm the complainant in the church while protecting the abuser.
Treat abuse as a crime, the Church don't, but anyone who witnesses or experiences abuse should.
Abuse is almost a perk of the job in Church and has been for a long time, with outraged letters in the papers in response to recent clergy arrests, saying that the abuser who ruined lives is a good man and the police should be imprisoning immigrants and not 'a good man who made mistakes in his 20s and who doesn't'.

6. When arrested, were you going to Reg's Garden? Did you like Reg? Do you like his garden?

Yes, how did you know that? I was due to help with a charity event, yes I loved Reg's garden, I loved the birds, I remember being told their names and which ones could speak or which ones liked to escape or bite!

7. What do you think about Reg's Garden closing?

That's a shame, it will never be forgotten. It was a venue for so many good things, including Songs of Praise for the Romania charity. I always enjoyed that.

8. When arrested, do you think you were fairly assessed by the doctor for aspergers?

I am not sure I understand the question, I don't remember much except the police jeering and brutalizing me, and they claimed in court to have psychologically assessed me but how did they do that if I was unconscious?

9. Who told you to accept being bound over for three years?

Don't ask me about court stuff because I neither heard nor understood anything about it, all I knew is that my abuser and his supporter, the Dean, had triumphed and Jane Fisher and the Bishop had actively helped them. I do not and never will, understand the police and court stuff, only that I was treated like dirt and left so severely traumatized that I nearly didn't survive, only going on the run on the streets saved my life and I remain deeply deeply traumatized.
I was told what to plead, I understood nothing.
That destroyal of me was Jane Fisher's greatest triumph in 'unsafeguarding' when my name was in the paper and my abuser and his supporter were in their warm homes, happily sharing the news with their friends and family to discredit me.

10. Did they explain that it would mean leaving Jersey?
I don't know. 

11. Was any help given to you when you left Jersey?
No, Jane Fisher launched a full on onslaught slandering me to churches, homeless services and my old friends in my home town of Winchester, she destroyed me openly and callously in order to protect her and the Bishop's reputation, and I cannot describe to you how horrifying it was to be publicly crucified in my home town after being destroyed and imprisoned in Jersey, I have never met anyone as evil and callous as Fisher, and to make it worse she pretended to do it out of care, and then had me brutalized in front of my fellow homeless and imprisoned again for reacting to her harassment and slander of me round Winchester.

12. Do you think the church will practice proper safeguarding despite saying so?


No mate, you have gotta be joking, they don't know what the word means.


I am sorry but I can't write any more in case I suffer a collapse, thank you for the interview but it has invoked horrifying memories.


Tuesday, 11 August 2015

As Bishop spineless boasts about safeguarding in Jersey, his church officer makes the headlines!

This is Philip Bailhache, one of the Church officers who has supported and protected my abuser who was a church officer alongside him.


While Bishop Willmott lies about safeguarding being great. This man still holds church positions.
I want something done about the lies that are misleading people and mocking me and what I have suffered.

Lies that Bishop Willmott tells us

Dear Church of England,

Stupid comment of the year goes to Juliet Montague's former sweetheart, Bishop Trevor Willmott, another insult to church abuse victims of all kinds in Jersey. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-jersey-33859507

This is the Bishop who blatantly took part in cult games to manipulate vulnerable people in Jersey at a Church services at St. Pauls and St. Matthews.

During the last year a clergyman has had an affair with his lay reader in Jersey and left, leaving her to face the usual community shunning, several potentially serious safeguarding issues have occured within the Jersey churches, no resolution or conclusion regarding my complaints have been made, and I have been left vilified and destroyed. So why has Bishop Wilmott spat on Jesus by lying?

It would be nice if Trevor Willmott would do a Tim Dakin and shut his loud mouth on the kind of permenant basis that Dakin has.

Who is Willmott referring to as God's people? Not the vulnerable, who remain marginalised in all churches more so in Jersey, presumably he is referring to the fat rich men who pay his wages, but he, the same as Paul Butler, should just be quiet and not mock people who have been harmed by the Jersey churches and safeguarding failures by the Diocese of Winchester, including myself, and numerous others who have contacted me.
The church, when they open their mouths in the press, do the following: bray like donkeys, lie like logs, and play for the crowd. Unfortunately they always without exception manage to insult, lie and do everything Jesus told the Pharisees was wrong.

Could Bishop Willmott explain why Gavin Ashenden is still unashamedly attacking the vulnerable, and Muslims and gay people, and anyone who doesn't do it his way, and making out that mental illness is something where he can publicly cast out demons in order to get acclaim. So who are God's people who Bishop Willmott believes to be safe? Presumably he is stating that he is protecting the Dean, Ashenden, Birt, LeMarquand, LeFeuvre, and all others who have behaved horrifyingly in attacking me in the press and church during the past few years? Given his own behaviour, maybe he really believes that these are 'God's people' seeing as they pay his wages. No mention of how they have behaved and how the church have or haven't dealt with it. 
Disgusting.
Stop misleading people.

'God's people' or rather the rich fat old men, will not ever care about safeguarding, did Paul Butler write Trevor Willmott's lines? Was Trevor too busy smooching with a married vicar somewhere?
Julie used to love coming home and telling us about Bishop Trevor's crush on her. She called him Bishop Treasure, and he was one of a number of men she shared affection with during her sham marriage to a serial abuser, which again, the church destroyed me for.

And until Bishop Willmott has arranged a proper independent safeguarding report and issued a proper apology for the Korris-Gladwin-Steel-Johnstone whitewash., the best thing he can do is redact his blatant lie in the press today and start actually doing something about safeguarding.

Unfortunately the Church still don't know what safeguarding is? Does it make them rich and powerful? No, does it make them feel good about themselves? No, so why should they care?

Obviously as I continue to see silly, crass and insulting lies in the press, the Church has not in three years been able to resolve their destroyal of me as a result of leaving me in the hands of known abusers, knowingly, and refusing to deal with my complaint. 
They further have not been able to resolve a prolonged and very serious public attack on me by the Diocese of Winchester and Deanery of Jersey combined, a prolonged attack in the press and media, local and national that nearly drove me to death, while Bishops Dakin and Willmott stood by, Bishop Dakin joined in the attack as well.

Bishop Willmott shouldn't be expending energy on wickedness such as upholding the wrongdoers in Jersey, he and the whole church should be responding to their utterly devastating branding and defamation of me to protect men with power and money.


Would someone like to put the Dakin Gag on 'Bishop Treasure' or is it time for him to face action too? Oh don't worry, not Mark Hedley, who's aim in life is the same as Willmotts, to destroy the silenced and uphold the powerful wrongdoers.

It's called lying, Bishop Willmott, I know it is a way of life for the Church of England, lying at the expense of the vulnerable, and Paul Butler has done so spectacularly and regularly for quite a time.

The Diocese of Winchester are still employing an abuser who has broken the law, as a Safeguarding Director! A woman who not only let a known abuser to get his hands on me, but blamed me for that and the way I was treated by the church as a reaction, leaving me very very ill with depression, so how has anything changed???
Every day that the church continue to leave me waiting to be destroyed by defamatory whitewashes and add insult to injury by lies like those of Bishop Willmott today, is a day that the church continues to protect abusers and destroy victims, nothing has changed, and with spin-doctor butler protecting Jane Fisher, when will things change?

A big 'liar liar, pants on fire' to Bishop Willmott, the only people who are 'safe' in the church  to publicly attack abuse victims are the wealthy and powerful men in Jersey, Philip Bailhache, David Capps, Gerard leFeuvre, Gavin Ashenden, Michael Birt, and the rest of them, with their colleague Dame Steel.

Now when is there to be an independent investigation into my case, one that includes me?
In the meantime, stop LYING about safeguarding and stop LYING in the PRESS, I remain deeply deeply traumatised and destroyed by your actions and what you have done in leaving me suffering and waiting for each new press attack is wickedness, and it is time for an outside investigation. It is time for a genuine serious case review into jane Fisher's manipulation and use of social services and the police to harm and silence me.
There has been no conclusion for me, no resolution, the church destroyed me, then they came back and destroyed me again, and have left me ill from living waiting for each new attack after the horrendous lies about me in the press. No Bishop trevor, you presumably do not consider me to be one of 'God's people' but that is presumably because the poor and vulnerable aren't considered to be that by the wealthy and powerful who run the church to meet their own needs, so you do not consider me, or other vulnerable people to be 'God's people' because we definitely are NOT safe in churches in Jersey. You let me be preyed on, for the second time, by a known abuser and blamed and destroyed me for it.

When are the lies going to stop and the threat of defamation going to stop? When is the Church going to actually record MY story after YEARS of WHITEWASH that EXCLUDE ME?
How can Bishop Willmott be so positive that safeguarding is so great and those people who publicly lied about me and committed illegal acts are suddenly so caring about the vulnerable? Have they withdrawn their lies in the press and apologized to me? No, so why doesn't he redact his lies until they do?
And on the subject, Paul Butler's frantic efforts to get the church out of external investigation recently led to him showing off about handing big names over to the police, the duplicity was horrifying, so now, to ensure that his words ring true, Bishop Willmott and Bishop Butler and the Archbishop now need to hand Philip Bailhache and Dame Heather Steel over to the police for illegal activity involving police records and data protection breaches, and unfortunately for these two Bishops who were also her colleagues, Jane Fisher also needs to face charges.

The church in Jersey currently contains dignitaries who have actively and deliberately protected abusers in Jersey's care system, so maybe Bishop Trevor thinks 'God's people' are safe, but what about the Victims of his 'God's people?' including victims who suffered not only abuse but trauma as they watched Philip Bailhache protect Rodger Holland and others. He has never apologized or shown remorse, so how come he was a churchwarden alongside my abuser for so long? And since protecting my abuser through illegal acts such as illegal gain of police records and data protection acts, Bishop Trevor is trivializing these crimes and more and mocking me and other abuse survivors and vulnerable people who have been failed by Jersey and Winchester, and I am not the only one in the past few years.
As well as that, the church 'safeguarding policy' extends only to excluding and marginalizing the vulnerable without their knowledge or consent to meet the church insurance requirements and protect their clergy. 
The exclusions mean that no vulnerable person is allowed to a church or clergy house but they are not told this, while abusers are welcome, an example of this is my abuser being seen having tea with his protecting Vicar, Mike Taylor regularly during the time Jane Fisher was destroying me and protecting my abuser, while the clergy who had befriended me was told to turn me away after she had often had me round for tea, but she wasn't allowed to tell me, this left me shattered further and destroyed a good friendship, and then to add insult to injury, Jane Fisher, who was by now in full and constant attack against me, used that same clergy friend to continue to very seriously harm me.

I would like Bishop Willmott to apologize for his crass statement now.
The church have enabled and supported the Jersey Deanery fully in destroying me, and claimed it was to do with safeguarding. It really is time outside intervention on a large scale occured, because there is something seriously wrong with these glaring inaccuracies.
Also the recent suggestion that the Archbishop of Canterbury should investigate my complaint against Bishop Dakin makes that even more so, as the Archbishop upheld both Dakin and Key in their abhorrent behaviour.
Tell me, how was publishing lies about me as fact and in the press, good safeguarding, and how was letting me be attacked and receive death threats and being driven and on the run, safeguarding? Tell me how allowing the wrongdoers to run the investigation and then smugly claiming that 'God's people are safe' is safeguarding, when you haven't even resolved the damage to me or produced a balanced safeguarding investigation.
Time for outside investigation.


Don't forget: http://www.opnlttr.com/letter/jane-fisher-safeguarding-director-winchester-diocese This woman was allowed to destroy me and then destroy me again, in light of Bishop Willmott's lies today, do explain why?

This email will now be published online.

Just browsing twitter and I had a thought...

This is what the Diocese and Deanery war is really all about, isn't it?
After all, we know Justin Welby is a banker who loves capitalism.

It certainly aint about the vulnerable, who Jersey and the UK both agree are worthless.

Formal and Public Letter to Mrs Glenys Johnstone, OBE, chair of Jersey's safeguarding report

Of course the obvious question is... Is Johnstone also a member of the Church of England as Korris and the others are?

06/08/2015

Formal Letter to Glenys Johnstone, Chair of Jersey’s ‘Independent’ Safeguarding Panel. This letter is distributed to the press, media, Jersey bloggers and also published online on blogs and websites, this letter is also distributed among twitter and other social media and survivors groups. Observers of this letter, there is a whole list of links at the end and throughout to illustrate the matter. This letter will not be redacted and will form part of an ongoing complaint.

Dear Mrs Johnstone,
Hello, I am HG, the abuse survivor who you have been helping to destroy.

You don’t know me, and you don’t want to, but I know my formal letter of warning reached you, I know you reacted, and I know you have been repeatedly reading the letters posted on my blog. Why don’t you hear about who I am instead of listening and documenting lies? I observe no response from you, a diocese of Winchester style contempt for my views.

Here is my daily diary that started online in 2011, when I was homeless and still being harmed by Jane Fisher’s illegal interventions, as I still am through you. Life After the Diocese was originally called ‘Homeless’ and then ‘The Wanderer’ and named ‘Life After the Diocese’ in honour of the prolonged attack on me by the Diocese in 2013: 


The story of a peaceful life daily harmed by the church and police and your panel and the trauma they have caused, I dare you to read it, the Church of England are terrified of it, they won’t read it because it invalidated their attack on me and it discredits them. This diary has had a good following from the start and helped to save my life and restore me.

It is difficult to find the right spelling for your name but I will get it right in time for court, it is made harder by Bob Hill spelling it several ways.

I don’t know a lot about you except that you are dishonest and that you have made me suffer prolonged stress and illness by whitewashing a report and saying that the police have committed no misconduct when they have, and leaving me waiting to be further damaged and defamed by your whitewash alongside waiting to be destroyed by the Steel whitewash, and the two reports are not mutually exclusive, they are linked by Jane Fisher and Stuart Gull, part of a relationship of mutual cover-up between the Diocese of Winchester and Jersey police that has now been running at my expense since 2008, and even the Korris rubbish shows glimpses of it although it has been well covered up.

Both your report and the Steel report are whitewashes to mutually scratch police and church backs, and it is astounding it is still happening considering how such whitewashes and cover ups are currently hitting the news with regular impact in other abuse cases. We will chat about LEICESTER in that context during this letter.

Can you imagine any situation, under any excuse, when members of the defendants team are allowed to write the report, to the exclusion of the victim, and that be considered balanced or fair? Because Stuart Gull represents the seriously compromised States of Jersey Police, who committed serious and sustained misconduct and Dame Heather Steel represents her friends and colleagues in the intermeshed Jersey Deanery and Judiciary, including Philip Bailhache, Michael Birt, Ian LeMarquand, Bridget Shaw, Gavin Ashenden, etc, all of whom have been involved in other misconducts, but none of whom have been subject to public crucifiction as I have.

Are they vulnerable? Are they abuse survivors? No. Have you acted on their harassment of me in the press and community? No. Have you been asked to? Yes. So why have you proceeded your conflicted whitewash without my consent and knowing it is conflicted, instead? Don’t you think you have got the concept of safeguarding inside out then? Please deal with the safeguarding issue of dignitaries in Jersey slurring and attacking abuse survivors.

Let me just clarify a few things about Police officer Stuart Gull, who you have liased with, he is part of your safeguarding panel, he is also the officer ‘appointed’ by the Bishop of Winchester in a grandiouse show in the press, to liase without my consent with the conflicted Dame Heather Steel, who is allied with members of the Jersey Deanery, to illegally access my inaccurate police records.

Let me ask you something, do wrongdoers usually put their hands up and admit to wrongdoing? Do they put their misconducts on record or cover up for themselves? Especially if they are in authority and at risk of dismissals or press and public negativity? If people who are essentially defendants are allowed to have control of or influence of reports, for example Steel and Gull and Fisher, are they going to do a fair and balanced report? Are they going to include my side of things? Or are they going to ensure that I am excluded, and the people they are protecting are cleared? I think you either know the answer to that or you are not fit to be in your job.

The Korris report was the first and only whitewash to be published, that was primarily Jane Fisher’s cover up for her misconduct, notably it excluded me, and the Bishop of Winchester ignored my views on it until I took him to court and he then hurriedly removed the report from the diocesan website while muttering lies about how he had ‘tried to include me’ which was indeed a blatant lie, which he has never tried to qualify by explaining why he didn’t amend the report with my views.
The Bishop further refuses to discipline the conflicted Jane Fisher or remove her from this matter, again showing that this is nothing to do with safeguarding at all. Jane Fisher’s colleagues, Paul Butler and Elizabeth Hall, famous for their desparate uncoverup to try and prevent the church from being investigated, are also protecting Fisher, even though she is responsible for serious and sustained harm to me.

In the same vein, you told Bob Hill the police had no case to answer when your whitewash was first announced, failed to interview me, and contacted me after you had apparently completed your report. Steel was much the same vein. And what excuse do you all have for these whitewashes that exclude the key witness? That I am mad? Bad? Have you heard my story? Heard how severe the trauma was that led to what happened? No, you haven’t even tried to hear me, so what use are your reports? What is their purpose apart from being a box ticking exercise and a cover-up for wrongdoers? Why then are you collectively claiming that these are safeguarding exercises?

I am not on trial any more, not voiceless,  we who survived, we have a voice and we can say ‘No more’. So this is the end of me being condemned by you and your associates. I say that in Jesus Name too.
I am just going to illustrate a few points, madness:


Previous letters to Glenys Johnstone:



Unfortunately you do have to be part of an investigation now, an investigation into how this massive whitewash was engineered at my expense and has left me ill and under massive pressure and stress for the past few years.

And you personally need to be involved in an investigation that explores your links between high profile abusers in Leicester and their cover up, and your timely ‘choice’ to head safeguarding in Jersey. I am sure that as you have been happy to play a part in publicly destroying me, you will not take offence at the connection I have made and already shared with you. Your actions led to me making that connection.

You were in Leicester social services during a time that high profile abusers were also operating to take advantage of vulnerable children, and unfortunately I was also around, as I am sure you have realised. Would you like to talk about Greville Janner and Frank Beck, and then your transfer to heading Jersey’s safeguarding at such a sensitive time – a time when other powerful people are being linked to abuse in the care homes in Jersey. 
Stuart Gull is a spin doctor and cover up doctor for the police, am I right in assuming, due to your whitewash in my case, that you, having not faced any investigation for the endemic abuse in Leicestershire, not just Beck and Janner, and why that abuse was going on under your nose, moved to Jersey to continue the good work?

I am sure you won’t like my ‘allegations’ but allow that to illustrate just how much I dislike YOUR allegations! You have tried to discredit me by claiming that the serious and sustained misconduct of Jersey police didn’t occur! You have no idea how hard it is for me to survive not only the horror of what I survived in Jersey, followed by the combined and sustained attack on me by you and Gull and Steel and the Diocese and Deanery, if I was anyone else I would have conveniently committed suicide, as some of the Leicester Victims who you failed conveniently did, as some of the Jersey abuse survivors conveniently did, convenient for you and your police and the dignitaries who you have protected.

I am trying to find you a copy of the letter written to Jersey’s joke of a police complaints authority in 2009, that they never responded to, and it only got much much worse from then on, this isn’t in your scabby excuse for a report, I recall a lot of evidence that both Jersey and Leicester police are very corrupt and have deliberately acted for abusers in power, some of the psychological harm to me that prevents me relating to people well is directly as a result of Leicestershire constabulary’s failures, and more from Jersey police.

Back to the Leicester matter, I know both from my childhood and from accounts of survivors on the streets how horrendous the care system in Leicester/shire was, now can you tell me a bit about your OBE in return? We could go through a list of titles allocated to both abusers and people who covered for them, an interesting trend in the news, but here’s a complete and utter wild card question, did a man called Mark Lupton ever come to your blind eyes or bribe? Oops, I meant attention!

So Glenys, I gather you are not an observant lady, all that abuse going on in Leicester/shire, and you didn’t notice a thing and you got an OBE for it! And in Jersey you are still not noticing a thing! Wow! I guess you get to be a Dame or something pretty soon?

I already know how wrongdoers in authority react to being challenged. Stuart Syvret and Trevor and Shona Pitman were ruined for challenging them, my parents suffered terribly, and I have been repeatedly and publicly destroyed. So before you set off the routine beatings and imprisonments, remember, I have survived it repeatedly, I am brutally and severely harmed but I have lived, and my attitude now is that you will kill me or I will live, but this letter is printed and circulated, indelibly, copied, recorded, forever. I learned that from the Jersey bloggers, especially Stuart Syvret and Trevor Pitman. You can ruin, even kill, but you can no longer delete, and I hope survivors are picking that message up very fast.

You and your police and church only know how to destroy in order to silence, but as I said, it doesn’t work any more, the world is changing, it worked in Leicester in the 80s and 90s, it worked in other areas, Islington, Kincora, it worked against victims who ‘committed suicide’ and met other accidents, but I am prepared to live or die, I have survived so much that I will not take my life, I will let you take my life by police beatings if necessary, as long as the culture of cover- up continues to be smashed as a result and other survivors are freed. There are a lot of survivors now, and Leicester and Jersey stand out, and you are now a link, as far as I am concerned, and I saw that link through your whitewash of my case.

Your whitewash and your link to Leicester means you are not credible, how are you doing in influencing the Jersey Care Inquiry, seeing as you were wheeled in AFTER the inquiry was decided? Jersey had NO safeguarding provision previously and reports and press articles indicate that is still doesn’t, just a damn good pretence on your part!
Let’s see if Jersey has ‘learned lessons’ or has any safeguarding, shall we? I want this complaint investigated, and all the complaints surrounding it!  That will be the test.

Can we just go back to your Liecester connection? You are probably in contact with Keith Vaz? The esteemed member of the committee regards Child abuse? The interlinks are so clear aren’t they? You are part of those interlinks, and your place is the same as Vaz’s, if I judge by my case, keep it sweet for the dignitaries and police? Yes?

Mr Vaz was approached about Greville Janner, by my MOTHER in 1992, and he sent her away and defended Janner. How do you feel about your associate, Mr Vaz, at the moment? Do you remember it all? Leicester in the 80s and 90s, complaints about Janner? What did you do? What earned you the OBE? Why is Vaz on the committee regards the CSA inquiry?

I wonder what your response will be to this letter? Maybe I will know in a few years, judging by you contacting me a year after you had stated the police were innocent and contacting me only as a token, like Steel did, after you had made your arrangements to clear wrongdoers.
Let me do a little diagram: Ted Heath-Leon Brittan-Greville Janner-Vaz-Glenys Johnstone-Heather Steel-Philip Bailhache-Ted Heath-(Name redacted)-Ian LeMarquand-(name redacted)-ButlerSloss, Hedley. this is almost exhaustive but rather than being an allegation it is a power line. Time it ended. No-one should be in an omnipotent position to prevent justice for victims.

I just thought I would observe a pattern that illustrates how the various reports on my case were engineered, John Gladwin was wheeled in due to his name for the Chichester report but he was relegated to looking at ‘constitutional issues’, Steel then ‘stepped forward’ to whitewash the rest for the Deanery and because she didn’t investigate the police and deportation, couldn’t credibly whitewash that, Johnstone could whitewash that from her dual position. Neat, you have to look hard to see the arrangement.

Let me assure you, Jersey police actually contradicted themselves while keeping inaccurate records about me for those they favoured. I lived through appallingly dishonest aand brutal treatment at their hands when I was suffering traumatic stress from the sexual and very severe emotional abuse at the hands of the church warden, and your whitewash will not change that.

Let me be clear, you are going to be sued or face an injunction over your whitewash, I do not have any respect for titles or dignitaries, they haven’t done anything to earn respect, it is those on the ground who are working with and for survivors who are commanding respect, the old days of titles and dignitaries being above the law and ‘giving the order’ for those such as me to be destroyed for writing these things are over. Destroying me will not erase these indelible words, nor will the legal expertise or corruption and brutality of any police force or dignitaries change my course, I survived the last lot, branded and horrifically damaged, I survived it to write this.

You will not harm me further. I formally make that clear. You have claimed in response to a Freedom of information act request that you still intend to publish the whitewash, and this letter is to explain to you why you have no right to do so and why you are guilty of misconduct and who you are guilty of misconduct in liason with.

Jane Fisher was recorded and witnessed as being in Jersey to engineer this matter, and other acts of hers have been witnessed, so as well as holding you liable, the Diocese will also continued to be held to account for your and Steel and Gull’s actions, I will continue to contest them until their prolonged attack on my life is destroyed, and having me beaten and locked up will not turn my course, and if I am killed, as I nearly have been by the public crucifiction and the trauma, these words are indelible like the statements made in the 90s against Janner.

I hereby officially discredit and annul your position and report on my case, you have proved unreliable and dishonest and devious in recording events in Jersey relating to my case, and yes, this can and will be shown to a court of law. Your report is forbidden by me from any further publication, it is not to be shared with the diocese if you have not already shared it, after all it was a whitewash for their aims, and they and you will face legal action if it has been shared or is used by them, and this is now written and recorded.

And this is the well-worn phrase I have shared with you all collectively regarding this matter ‘If this is how you treat me and I have barely survived and been able to answer back in a small voice against you and your press, what happens to the voiceless vulnerable who you do this to?’ What happens to countless whitewashes and beatings and silencing of vulnerable? Will it all come to light as the tide changes against you? Or will those deaths remain in silence and in vain, blamed on madness as you tried to with me? I think Lowell Goddard needs a copy of this letter, would you do the honours?

The gentleman who you defamed in the only report you have published is dead, can’t answer back, I speak for him, you are annulled.
If I hear you spluttering about ‘allegations’ ‘unfounded’ and harassment, you kicked off by harassing me, and put me in a position to believe that you are complicit in cover-ups at my expense to protect wrongdoers. 
And seeing as you have been unwilling to genuinely include me in any report, you have no right to swipe this aside with the defamatory opinions that others have of me, you need to at least consider their own misconducts first and include them in any report to balance it.

Sincerely,

HG
